Yes, buy this game. Its Killing floor + Halo + Turok.
It has its flaws, but the devs seem devoted and are present on the steam forums. If you played this game in beta and not again(like me) give it another shot, it is now playable(LoL) and quite awesome. The difference is uncanny. I reinstalled it yesterday and I'm already level 11. It never felt like grinding.
Buy a four pack, get some friends who will play installed and have a blast together.

For me the biggest con is the limited players. That easy to solve though, buy and play this WAY under priced game.

This game is unoriginal in the sense of the weapons, vehicles, gameplay, and layout. But don't think i disliked the game, it is phenominal. The action and co op make the game perfect for multipalyer. At the heart of it, this game is plain fun to play.

The year was 1967. We'd just been deployed in the delta to keep the Cong and NVA from approaching some of the major trails. I was trudging through one of the tree covered marshes, soaked to the core, wondering what the hell I'd gotten myself into. We were two minutes away from setting up an M249 on a rigged turret when out of nowhere what looked like a pterodactyl flew down and exploded, killing four people in my unit. From there on out, it was hell, neon lights everywhere, and then the god damned t-rex had to come in and stomp our ♥♥♥♥.

Either way, this is a 10/10 simulation of Vietnam War II's opening, with Far Cry Blood Dragon acting as a good reenactment of the end of VWII. May the t-rexes of the world rot where they stand.

Over the years this game has been bashed as one of the worst games to be released on steam, however now I'd say get it.

For £0.79 game the graphics look like they are from a game costing £30, and the weather effects you get on your helmet is a nice addtion too, the main enemys in this game are dinosaurs and there are 7 of them and 2 flying reptiles and a giant Crocodile, all 10 of them feel unquie and fun to fight against.

You can get vechicles in this game, theres the average jeep with turret, a jet and a tank, but best of all theres a MECH! YES A MECH YOU CAN FIGHT A TREX WITH A MECH! All of the vechicles are great to drive and are really helpful overall.

Game breaking glitches like map glitches or crashes are very rare in this game, the only one I can think of is where you can leave a map by playing as a flying reptile or playing Assault with the jetpack and fly above the boundires, luckly this is only on one map and it's unplayed often.

However this game does have a few downsides....

1. A lot of weapon clipping, sound glitches and firing glitches, most noticeable with the default pistol, duo pistols and using reload speed upgrade.
2. Ragdolls are really glitchy at times, however more tame then any from the Source engine.
3. Playing as Dinosaurs is nearly impossible with the terrible camara angle and controls.
4. Soundtrack is really stock.
5. Small, but very friendly commuinty

Overall the game is much more better then it orignally was, a fun CO-OP horde game to play with your friends!.

Graphics are stunning, the most realistic thing I've ever seen. I wish I had 3d glasses so I could abuse the 3D mode. Has a huge class variety, which one is extremely different from the others. The Soundtrack is so nice I feel like bethoveen couldn't do better. Also, the learning curve is so smooth I can always learn more and more!

This game is the new eSport.

Fun! Lots of fun and innovation right ahead!

+ Awesome concept
+ Various types of dinosaurs
+ Alive community as hell
+ Usually has some good prizes
+ Lots of game types
+ Well made vehicles
+ Awesome potential

- Few and unbalanced classes
- Relatively a few weapons
- Not very known game
- Sometimes you get p!ssed
- Suggestions to make a perfect game


1. Awesome concept
When I first bought the game I thought like dafuq am I buying? A game with a goal that is to kill dinosaurs? But wait, it's only R$1.50? I'll give it a try. And I liked it! A lot! The concept is fun, the teams have to be organized to survive the hordes of dinosaurs, that come from air or land. Although the graphics are not thaaaat good (they're only 'good', not 'very god', but that's not bad). Even though the dino-shooter game category is incresing, Orion is awesome and even if it's cheap it deserves a nice place in that place in that category.

2. Tons of different dinosaurs
The game itself has a lot of different dinosaurs, from different species and with different statuses: some are tank-ish, others are fast, others fly, others are so small that shooting them is way too difficult and etc. That's awesome! Bringing lots of types of dinos is truly a heavy thumbs up to the game, while other games lack in this topic, Orion is an absolutely win here.

3 Alive community
The community is alive, differently from other games and the devs are constantly open to discussion or sometimes they start contests or invite people to play with them, isn't that cool? I've seen lots and lots of games (some good games, acutally) that are with more than one year without free patches and are only 1,5 or two years in the market. This game's about 2.5 years until today being sold and is being constantly changed.

4. Usually has some good prizes
This topic is strongly related to topic 11, unfortunatedly. But everything has its good and bad sides! The good thing is that I've seen Orion with awesome prizes (85%, 90% off) a lot of times before actually buying it. I bought it with a heavy discount, 90% off if I'm right, and profited very well. It was actually better than a lot of games that I actually paid more and had less fun.

5. Game types
This topic is not as important as it should be since most of the shooter games -related to dinos or not- have this in common but since it's present in Orion it should be pointed, shouldn't it? Like many other games there are lots of game modes PvP, PvE, EvP, etc. It is a positive point so it has to be put here but nothing special.

6. Vehicles!
The vehicle types are cool! There are tanks, jet-motos, mechs, futuristic helicopters, jeeps, mechs and other types! The good things are not the vehicles themselves but the way you can use it. Even if the graphic's not that excellent there's always an animation of getting in and getting out, signal that at least the developers tried to make the game the most complete as they could. Other thing is that depending the place you are and enter the car, you can't drive or you can't shoot, that's a complete and wide thinking of placing the player in the most realistic ambient to the game. You can also get up on some vehicles while they're moving and they "carry" you as long as you're on them. Of course that there are some necessary vehicles missing, like a two people mech and a 2-4 people helicopter but the game they way it is is not that bad :)

7. Awesome potential
Well, what can I say, this topic means it all. Yea, Orion has a huge potential, believe me or not, and it only depends on the developers. The ambient is nice, the dinos are annoying (well, they're only doing their job, hah), the vehicles are challenging, there are bosses (with, let me say, are hard AS HELL to kill) and a lot of other things that are differential to other games. This game's technically prepared to have any colossal upgrade that can greatly increase it's gaming experience, remember this.


8. Unbalanced classes
The game can have up to three classes only (assault, spy and medic -you probably know what they all do). But it lacks a LOT of classes, for example at least engineers, tanks, snipers, hunters, scouts, and ninjas/melee-handed (anyway, call them the way you want) are missing. Another bad thing is that every weapon is absolutely the same if used by any class, with means that, for example, if an assault player uses a machine gun they'll get the same damage output as a medic (which is NOT right, since the assault-dude is focused on hitting while the medic is focused on supporting). That's not right. The game could have at least an upgrade-tree, too, particular to each class. You can see some suggestions at topic 12.

9. Few weapons
The game has too few weapons in my opinion and they're all pretty much the same. They're all ballistic and the game's context is futuristical. Not that the game would need to have futuristical antimatter-weapons or black hole generators or portals, no. But at least some energy short range weapons, maybe some lasers, gauss rifles or 'dino-ECMs'? Maybe...?

10. What is Orion?
The game's not very known, maybe because the gaming industry is way too competitive, maybe because it was re-released twice I think, or even maybe because the game has poor grades in a lot of sites and was poorly reviewed by a lot of critics (just see their grades). That's odd, I might say. If you see the Steam Store valuations the game score is 74/100. Anyway, despite the reason is, the game does not has a very good fame and that keeps pushing it down the gamer community, not only Steam.

11. You usually get ♥♥♥♥ed
Most of the times when you're playing PvE games at medium difficulty or harder you have huge chances of getting killed, despite of the reason. But the point is that when you die you lose ALL (I repeat, ALL) of your character/weapon upgrades and weapons! FFS! I know the game's not meant to be easy but this kills the game sometimes, it's very common to see players leaving rooms after getting killed, making the survival task way harder than it normally is, unbalancing the game and making sometimes other players leave! If you buy this game be sure this will be a common thing to you!

12. It lacks a lot of good things that could absolutely make it a perfectly success game
The game's awesome but it lacks a lot of things that some other games have that make them more successful as Orion. Let's list them up here who knows maybe a Spiral developer read them
  • Classes overhaul: The class system needs to be completely remade. Not that the ones who are in the game are bad, but because they're insufficient to fill all of the gaps the game lacks:
    AssaultShoot things at a fair range
    Can fly.
    SpyMaster of disguise.
    Can turn invisible.
    MedicCan heal people up
    Has a +0.5 HP/sec regeneration aura (10 meters).
    EngineersLike techy stuff
    Can repair vehicles with his money but earn more money.
    Tank-ishesHave more armor.
    Better at close-ranged fighting.
    HuntersIncredible damage with bows/crossbows.
    Can smell enemies
    ScoutsPoke and run
    Can run faster with their futuristic armors.
    MeleeAwesome damage with swords and knives.
    Can make enemies bleed!
  • Campaign
  • Bigger vehicles
  • More game modes
  • Profile passive skills
  • More dinosaurs! :D

I enjoyed it since the dino horde update. It's like a mixture of killing floor, halo and dinosaurs, sounds silly but it's a really fun game to play with your friends. Good graphics, no story mode(single player), 5 different difficulties, pvp and co-op mods, three classes and many equipments to choose from, vehicles, simple serverlists, simple level system that rewards you boosts, ''starting weapons'' and more. This game is worth more than the price says, grab it and share with your friends! :)
